The Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal has just released its annual Women of Influence publication that honors 100 women in Silicon Valley. The common thread that tied all 100 women together is their achievements in becoming self-made, successful, influential women both in their career fields and in their communities.
Our own thread to Marilyn and Creation Ground Media is through our video Lapchi, A Tibetan Wool Story. Marilyn and her partner George Cohen, in conjunction with Lapchi’s owners and overseas staff, shot and edited our DVD on carpet production. Traveling to Kathmandu, Marilyn and George quickly developed a love for the diverse culture of Nepal, which is exhibited in their respectful treatment of the land, the people and the traditions of the Tibetan and Nepalese weavers.
A short 3 minute version is posted on our web site, lapchi.com. Full length DVD copies are available to share with anyone interested in the weaving culture of Nepal and the complex process of producing a beautiful hand-made, custom-made carpet.
Congratulations Marilyn from everyone at Lapchi, Hand-made Carpets in Silk and wool.
